Yeah, we'd have it in pieces (Either at hardware or software, if not both) within a day.

No, it's not a LTE modem. B618 is out current LTE modem and will be for some time i expect.

Can a customer on copper buy this now? Or will they have to wait until it's officially launched on copper?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

The quick start guide includes both DSL and Fibre instructions so I'd say yes

as a hardware offer, yes (eg specifically purchased). but device we will be handing out for orders otherwise for copper is the 659b - soon as these are gone it will be on all of it.

Oh dear, why did I do that? Apparently 5g is weapons grade, and "they" are going to turn it on and the aluminium in vaccines will make us glow so the government will always be able to track us and kill us all!

Sigh. We let these people vote...

Is there any option to swap the HG659b with this? Number of devices limit raise is appealing...
